Blurb (from Goodreads):
When her father is accused of being a serial killer, Bex becomes the ultimate bait in this game of cat and mouse
Bex is ready to start a new life in foster care. There, she won't be known as a serial killer's daughter. Though her father was never tried for the murders attributed to "The Wife Collector," he disappeared after questioning. And Bex struggles with the guilt that she provided the circumstantial evidence that convicted him in the public's perception—and drove him to abandon her.
But when a body turns up in her new hometown, all signs point to the Wife Collector. Bex's old life isn't ready to let her go. The police want to use Bex to lure in her father. But is she baiting a serial killer or endangering an innocent man?
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
“No way was she going to fade into her hoodie and let people think she was a serial killer just because her father was.
That was Beth Anne Reimer.
And she was Bex Andrews now.”
This was a YA mystery story about a girl whose father was a serial killer.
Bex was an okay character, although she did seem a little torn when it came to her father. Considering that she was part of the reason that he was arrested, I think I’d have been a little more scared about him coming back to find her.
The storyline in this was about Bex starting over at a new school in a new place with new foster parents, and her serial killer father striking again. We got a bit of mystery over who would be killed, and also a bit of mystery as to whether Bex’s father was really to blame, and a strange man following Bex around. The pace in this was okay, although towards the end things didn’t move fast enough for me, and I wasn’t swayed by the other possible culprit at all.
The ending to this was okay, and things were tied up fairly well.
